Chris Brown on Hit-and-Run Case Dismissal: Thank God!!!

by at . Comments

Chris Brown will not face criminal charges after as a Los Angeles judge officially dismissed a hit-and-run case stemming from a car accident in May.

Shortly after the much-needed victory, he Tweeted, "Thank God!!!"

The decision came despite the city prosecutor claiming he should be punished - and severely, at that - for the car accident in Toluca Lake, California.

The judge told the court that Brown had reached a civil compromise with the other driver, a woman whose Mercedes he hit with his Range Rover.

His aggressive behavior, providing of inaccurate insurance info, and probationary status made the incident more serious, prosecutors told the court.

Defense attorney Mark Geragos said Brown accidentally gave the woman the wrong insurance information, and did not deliberately mislead anyone.

Geragos also argued that the case never should have been filed and that Chris Brown was "prosecuted for who he is rather than what he's done."

It appears that the judge ultimately agreed, as the case was tossed.

The Forever singer had pleaded not guilty to the charges that were considered a probation violation in relation to his infamous Rihanna assault case.

After the May car accident, Chris took to his Twitter account, calling the incident "ridiculous" and denying that he gave the other driver false details.

"It's not a hit and run if u get out the car, exchange information (who has NO DAMAGE to either cars). This is really ridiculous. I have a valid drivers license and I gave the woman the right info."

"She saw cameras and wanted to make a scene. She contacted the cops thinking of a payday from Chris Brown when I followed the proper procedures."

The woman, for her part, later said that she did not want money and simply wanted the case closed - a big reason that this was the actual outcome.

So score one for Brown ... for once.

Chris is still being sued by Frank Ocean's cousin, however, for his role in a parking lot fight, and stands accused of falsifying his community service.

A day in the life ...
